Ross School inhabits a unique set of spaces that reflect an unparalleled educational and aesthetic standard.
The content of the curriculum is woven into the design of spaces through the use of art and artifacts. Art and artifacts act as a visual and experiential text and are a core component of students’ educational experiences at Ross. Through these design strategies, students quite literally live inside the curriculum.
Students’ surroundings have an enormous impact on their thinking, even at the very basic level of affecting mood and priming the brain for learning. The emphasis of our buildings and grounds is on intention; these are places that waken the senses and inspire people to interact significantly, to inquire broadly and deeply, and to seek the highest of themselves.
